This article is so dated, I'm surprised Spark People is still running it. Please update your articles, SP!!
Any level of alcohol consumption is dangerous: (from August 2018) https://www.thelancet.com/article/S0140-67
Meta-analysis is a lazy means of reporting. One cannot draw all the study results into a database and report the complied data as it does not demonstrate the conditions of the individual studies.
This article is old and no longer valid. For current data, one should read more recent studies (not meta analysis reports.)
Good need-to-know information, thanks!
This article was written in 2011... newer research is saying maybe Not!
I only drink alcohol a few times a year because alcohol is a poison.
And if that’s not enough to get you to stop drinking it maybe the fact that it’s high in non-nutritive calories and carbohydrates and will make you gain weight.
Good article. Good need-to-know information. Thanks.
Thanks for this article there is allot of information being passed around and I am never sure what is scientifically bases or just personal option.
Anything in moderation unless advised by dr otherwise.
I don't drink at all. Good comments , though!
NIH just pulled a study on alcohol consumption; turns out some of the researchers were a little too close to folks in the alcohol industry.
I notice there's no mention of alcohol being a Group I carcinogen nor that WHO considers no amount of alcohol consumption safe due to the cancer risk.
Love reading the comments!
the comments are more interesting than the article. js
